  1. Epitaxial GaN on flexible metal tapes for low-cost transistor devices

    SBC: IBEAM MATERIALS, INC.            Topic: 1

    GaN-based devices are the basis of a variety of modern electronics applications, especially in optoelectronics and high-frequency / high-power electronics. These devices are based on epitaxial films grown on single-crystal wafers. The single-crystal wafer substrates are limiting because of their size, expense, mechanical properties and availability. If one could make GaN-based devices over large a ...

  2. Ultra-High Density Ion Propulsion From Ionic Liquids

    SBC: Busek Co., Inc.            Topic: AF11BT10

    ABSTRACT: Busek Co. Inc. and Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) propose to explore the physical limits of ionic liquid propulsion via development of new theory to explain effects of close packing emission density and to predict performance limits. The research is motivated by observations and tests demonstrating that emission from 2-dimensional porous surfaces yields order of magnitude g ...

  3. Nonequilibrium Plasma-Assisted Combustion-Efficiency Control in Vitiated Air

    SBC: COMBUSTION SCIENCE & ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: AF13AT04

    ABSTRACT: The ability of plasmas to modify combustion has been known for more than 50 years. Recent advances in plasma generation technology and measurement diagnostics have led to extensive efforts to understand both the kinetics of the plasma-flame interaction and the enhancement of combustion properties such as ignition, extinction, flame speed and dynamics. Combustion Science & Engineering, ...

  4. Optical Remote Detection of Low Level Earth Surface Vibrations

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: AF12BT02

    ABSTRACT: Underground facilities can be used by rogue governments to conceal command-and-control and to manufacture weapons of mass destruction, and are an increasingly important operational challenge to U.S. military forces. Our objective is to determine improved methods of detection essential to address this critical intelligence need. Activity below the ground causes seismic surface waves th ...

  5. Mitigation of sand mold related metal casting defects through virtual manufacturing

    SBC: Mold Dynamics            Topic: 02a

    Metal casting is an important manufacturing process and most castings are made by small to mid-sized foundries. Sand molded castings account for 85% of all iron and steel castings produced and approximately 5 out of 30 major casting defects including gas blows and sand burn-on are related to poor sand mold atmosphere control. Mold atmosphere control should become more crucial in the coming years a ...

  6. High Spatial Resolution Ultrafast Sum-Frequency Generation Microscope

    SBC: Physics, Materials, and Applied Mathematics Research L.L.C.            Topic: 07a

    Vibrationally resonant sum-frequency generation (SFG) spectroscopy is a second order nonlinear optical technique that features high chemical selectivity and a set of selection rules that makes it an ideal complement to coherent Raman scattering (CRS) as an imaging tool. Attempts have been made to construct high-resolution, high speed SFG microscopes, but to date both the resolving power and image ...

  7. Next Generation Semiconductor-Based Radiation Detectors Using Cadmium Magnesium Telluride

    SBC: BRIMROSE TECHNOLOGY CORPORATION            Topic: 23c

    At present, CdZnTe is considered the material of choice for efficient, room temperature gamma-radiation detection systems used for the detection and identification of radionuclides. Despite the advances in CdZnTe materials technology during the last decade, the major impediments in the progress of - ray detection technology are the low yield of device quality materials and detectors, and the limit ...

  8. Standoff Detection of Radiological Materials using Light Filaments

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: 27a

    The ability to detect radiological materials at standoff distances of a kilometer or more would be invaluable to national security and nonproliferation efforts. In particular, it is important to be able to distinguish isotopes of uranium and other elements associated with nuclear weapons development and use. Current methods for identifying radiological isotopes require direct sampling. Laser ba ...

  9. Diamond sensor for the neutron electric dipole moment experiment

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: 39g

    As part of its mission to understand the fundamental forces and particles of nature as manifested in nuclear matter, DOE is funding an experiment to measure the electric dipole moment of neutron. This sophisticated experiment tests the standard model by monitoring the response of neutrons in crossed electric and magnetic fields. This Phase I project will investigate a method for measuring the str ...

  10. Methodology for Attrition Evaluation of Oxygen Carriers in Chemical Looping Systems

    SBC: ENVERGEX LLC            Topic: 11d

    This Small Business Innovation Research (STTR) project targets the development of novel methodology for the evaluation of a wide range of oxygen carriers, in particular, their attrition resistance, under conditions that broadly account for the process requirements of coal-based chemical looping systems. Existing test protocols and procedures for the evaluation of granular materials do not accurate ...
